I consider myself very fortunate to have grown up in Wyoming so close to the Wind River Mountains. The Wind Rivers hold Gannett Peak, the highest summit in Wyoming, Squaretop Mountain which is 3 times taller than Devil's Tower, and one of the most beautiful alpine environments you'll ever find: The Cirque of The Towers. The Wind Rivers serve as a mighty ambassador of the state, they are big, remote and rugged, and to scale their majestic summits you're going to have to do more than dayhiking. And the Tetons, those aren't bad either.

The photo below is one of my favorite places in the Wind Rivers and it provides an awesome view of Fremont and Jackson Peak. I'd tell you how to get there, but it is a secret. I'll give you a hint though, its a very sacred place.

"I climb because I'm here. I don't battle the mountains, I don't conquer anything, even when I do pull myself onto a summit. For me, the triumph comes in every step, in every breath and heartbeat along the way. It's the sheer pleasure of being on the planet, seeing the mountains around me and, for a brief moment, being a part of them. I climb for a simple reason: because I'm alive."
